Proud to be LIBERAL

About Me:

I'm a complex and sometimes intense person. On the same hand, I tend to live my life in a simple manner. I can also be quite lazy and boring. People always ask me "Are you okay?" because I have a tendency to be on the quiet side. But if you discover something that sparks me, I likely won't shut up. ;) At least until I get tired and start whining to escape back to my own little world. =P

This journal censors very little. I rarely make completely private posts, although sometimes I make the occasional "Friends Only" post. I've started to make more accessible only to those listed as "friends", because of certain people completely misconstruing what I've written. Not because I like to feel mysterious.

I could ramble on about all the facets that comprise my "inner workings", but if you really take an effort to understand me, you'll find everything you need to know about things such as what makes me tick in this journal. Or you can also just talk to me directly, that works too. ;)

"In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations." - From The Great Law Of The Iroquois Confederacy

"Nobody can make you feel inferior without your permission." - Eleanor Roosevelt

"No person is your friend who demands your silence, or denies your right to grow." - Alice Walker

Dance like no one is watching, Sing like no one is listening, Work like you don't need the paycheck, and Love like you have never been hurt before.

"Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be." - Jeremy Schwartz

Love those who deserve it the least - for they need it the most.

People who are too weak to follow their own dreams, will always find a way to discourage others.

What is love? Love is... when all the newness of the relationship is gone and you still wish to care and be with that person.

Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. - Confucius

We must be the change we wish to see; There is more to life than simply increasing its speed. - Gandhi
